  • $ 700 000
  • Gastronomy/Hotel For Sale
  • Lot size 8 092 sq m
  • Total square 8 092 sq m


Jollyboys are selling their secondary backpackers and camp site! The backpackers and camp site comes with all chattels including beds, linen cutlery, office equipment etc. The property is being sold as a business but does not include the Jolly Boys brand. However, the existing relationship between Jolly Boys backpackers and the camp site can continue.

The camp site/backpackers is a great budget option for families, groups and those wanting an affordable, value-for-money option in the tourism capital of Zambia. There is a beautiful swimming pool and the big circular fire pit is a great place to sit around with some hot chocolate and chat about your adventures. The site includes en-suite, double and twin rooms as well as dormitories and camping facilities.

The property is close to the town centre and all amenities including bars and restaurants and is regularly serviced by taxis with public transport close by. And only 10km from the Falls.

This would make a great investment for anyone looking to get into the Livingstone tourism market. The business is extremely viable and would maintain close ties with one of Livingstone's busiest backpackers - Jolly Boys. With recent upward trends in Zambian tourism, specifically Livingstone, this would be the perfect starting point to sharing in that growth.

Twin rooms, double rooms, dorms and family rooms
